In Florida, we live in an ideal place for explosive algae growth due to humidity coupled with a warm climate and shade from our beautiful palms and trees. We are one of the few states where manufacturers created special shingles called AR Shingles for Algae Resistant Shingles to help with withstand the algae that turns shingles black from algae growth in the porous areas for 10 years. Metal roofs are not porous, and with proper installation and a quality product you should never have to be concerned with staining of your roof from algae growth.
The cost for a metal roof depends on the type and texture (remember wood shingle look, tile look, lots of options to choose from, etc.?) as well as the pitch and size of your roof. If you want to keep your budget low, and still improve the durability, protection from algae, beauty and home value, incorporate it in accent areas or in areas that may need more protection such as a large tree that hangs over a portion of your home. Our metal roof department are experts in doing multi-product roofs which is why more builders use us for these projects than anyone else in Florida. Also, keep in mind that Home Town Roofing offers financing options that you and your estimating specialist can talk about during your free estimate.
